This is the finale of a 3 part series on the Bigfoot Massacre Theory.

For those who didn’t catch the 2 + hour long Squatch-D TV show of April 26th, featuring Thom Steenburg, Russell Acord and Rictor Riolo, we finally put the “Bigfoot Massacre” Theory to rest.

Part one featured Thom, showing where false assumptions and using less than stellar copies of evidence led to the incorrectly formed opinions of the authors of the massacre. According to Davis there were two massacres, one in Bluff Creek and one earlier in Blue Creek. The basis of the Bluff Creek massacre was alleged photographic evidence showing “blood.” The Blue Creek one was that of Bob Titmus leading a tracking dog owned by a Dale Moffitt and John Green. In actuality Titmus was not present at all and again “interpretation” of a badly color corrected film.

Steenburg also brought up the FACT that it was Keith Chiazarri (a pilot) there, not Bob Titmus. The article covering his surprise trip to Orleans, Ca. is covered here:

Below are pictures of Chiazarri confused by the theorists as Bob Titmus.

We also talked about Al Hodgson admitting he was wrong about Bob Titmus being there as he had mistakenly said that to the late Bobbie Short.

Psychologically

Now let’s look at some “Post Offense” behaviors by the alleged “suspects.”

After the alleged massacre, John Green, Rene Dahinden, Bob Titmus, Roger Patterson all wanted to prove the existence of Sasquatch right?

So did they bring any evidence forth? NO!

What one did, Roger Patterson, is bring a controversial film forward that proved NOTHING! So after the critics backlash why didn’t Roger go back and find some biological evidence?

He wasn’t making millions which any and all of them could have done bringing back a body. If the payoff was from loggers, why show the film and put yourself there? And why would the film get support from people, like Green, Dahinden, Titmus who were not receiving payment from Paterson?

If the payment was from loggers to eradicate a nuisance problem, post offense behavior would be to say and do nothing about it. Not show a film.

Legally

Would they be worried about being arrested for murder?

Well legally the answer to that would be NO.

Here’s why:

  1. You have to prove that the creature killed is part of the homo genus.
  2. Once and IF that would be established, it would get a date.
  3. You cannot go behind that date and charge someone with a crime, because on that date, it’s genus, had yet to be established. Therefore not making it a crime at the time of the alleged offense.

Another example is in a penalty phase of a convicted crime; hence why if in a death penalty state if you get convicted of a capital murder that occurred before the death penalty was established and written into law, the death penalty cannot be applied to such a conviction.

NONE of the massacre theorists “reasoning,” both legally and (in criminal psychology “post offense”) behaviorally makes any sense.

People forget too that a somewhat naïve and conceited cryptozoologist decided on his own accord in 2008, convinced what the massacre theorists had said was true, had written the Humbolt County D.A. at the time to investigate the claims. He interjected himself into saying if contacted he could give sources and “evidence.” I am sure that “letter” is framed somewhere today with people pointing and snickering to it.

No rebuttal or admission they were wrong, just more nonsense

One would think that if presented the evidence a logical person would say…oops, I made some mistakes. No actually Davis removes logical questions and points about the massacre theory being wrong.

The new proponent in this field with the loudest voice lately has been, not only “ I drank the Melba-Ketchum Kool-Aid” researcher Scott Carpenter but also internet bully Steve Isdahl.

And make no bones about it; Isdahl IS a cyber-bully. Often telling people, stay off the internet or people are going to pay or be scared. The only thing I can say positive about the guy is at least he isn’t hiding behind a screen name like so many other of the mindless followers that see fit to throw threats to an 88 year old man by the name of Bob Gimlin.

People have called putting fact out as character assassination, yet one person who accused us of doing that began to talk about John Green’s father. Now if that’s grasping at straw and character assassination I don’t know what is.

But these are FACTS:

Graphic B 

Slide 4

If you don’t think what I say is true, look at the video “Debunking the Texas Fence Walker.” Anyone who  thinks that a Sasquatch has skinny legs like that, and doesn’t see the pants…well I have little hope in your objectivity.  Also notice how cleaner my enhancements are than that of Davis very short, grainy enhancement.

Slide 6

Slide 7

If you don’t think Isdahl (Mr. HowToHunt) is not out for the clicks…just look at this graphic. (Remember he used to say Bigfoot was supernatural…ask yourself how would they have killed them then?). Proof of being disingenuous if you ask me.

Graphic D

Our third proponent, Scott Carpenter who likes to bring up Bobbi Short, an elderly woman at the time of her writings, and proven by Al Hodgson’s own comments he was incorrect about Titmus being on scene.

Slide 5

People have told me that they do not believe Carpenter intentionally hoaxes. But I ask the question,”Why no video showing any movement of the alleged subject?”

This is one of the “BlobSquatchers” we talk about. A guy with allegedly all this acumen, is not investigating further on his “alleged” evidence?

But even if not… he is what we classify as the “Unintentional Hoaxer.” The guy who goes out and sees Sasquatch in everything and more often than not. And uses pareidolia to either fool his audience or justify to his audience what they are looking at is a Sasquatch. 

At the very least it should question his reasoning ability.

Here are the proponents and who they actually are.

Slide 8

The above are not character assassinations, but all FACTS! They are all out for clicks and relevancy by producing either phony, disingenuous or totally naïve  information without relevant investigation on the Bigfoot phenomena.

That being said, we can put this stupid notion (and that’s all it is) that a bigfoot massacre occurred at Blue Creek and Bluff Creek to rest.

Peeping Bigfoot Part II

Yesterday, I announced the sad and the shocking truth, here about the “Peeping Bigfoot” and why with looking at Yeoman’s background why his story was a fabrication.

To recap quickly:

  1. He doesn’t live nor possess land in Bailey, Colorado or Park County, CO.
  2. He wife passed away in 2012 and he hasn’t remarried, so how was his wife in the story?
  3. He is not allowed to possess a firearm in Colorado, due to being a convicted felon.

There were other things of his story that didn’t jive from an investigator’s standpoint.

  1. Why didn’t he call his wife in at the onset of the incident?
  2. Convenient to have a camcorder sitting next to you in your living room, fully charged and ready to go.
  3. Convenient that the original file was destroyed in a fire, but the pictures of the computer screen somehow survived. Details of the fire were vague.
  4. Why wait almost 3 years to reveal this information?
  5. Why didn’t he name the correct Sheriff’s Department? He just stated the sheriff.

A tell to investigators that something is wrong with a story is how some elements of an account are very detailed and some very vague, especially when it comes to verifiable information. I have seen this hundreds of times.

I did locate his actual Colorado residence located in Golden, CO and it was in a pretty congested neighborhood. (Remember I said, this whole revelation was discovered by trying to properly file a FOIL request to the Park County Sheriff’s Office by obtaining a workable address.) That led to the discovery of his real name, Jonathan Scott Yeoman and a social media scrub tying him to Kokomo, IN (Howard County) which in turn led to the discovery of his arrest in Howard County Indiana. His actual residence in Colorado is in Jefferson County and has a history there confirmed by a 2008 arrest in Jefferson County for harassment.

Residence Overhead

Again this is not a judge of his character in the sense that he had been previously convicted of a felony. As you can see all of the red flags in the story itself. 

It would not be uncommon for a convicted sex offender to alter their name a bit because of the stigma attached, to their crime so Jonathan Scott Yeoman became Scott Yeoman publicly. I believe in some part, I am sure, so people do not easily connect the dots to his past convictions. That all from an investigator’s standpoint makes perfect sense.


The response

The response amongst the community was mixed. For some it was shock, for some it was more of the same; another hoax, believers turned. A couple held out until they were shown some of the things I discovered in more detail, quelling any doubts. But I did hear one story that made me shake my head and laugh.

“ ‘So and so’ believes the story was made up but the pictures are real.” – Anonymous

Well I knew there would be a few holdouts believing that. Despite my astonishment that someone would be that naïve, let me point out a few of flaws in that.

  1. Fruit of the poisonous tree. – Once a fabrication is revealed how can you trust any of this person’s evidence going forward? You cannot.
  2. Motive. There is no valid one.

Let’s look at motive in a couple of aspects of why someone would fabricate a story.

  1. To protect the creature? Well this doesn’t work here, why not just keep your mouth shut? It’s been almost 3 years. And why would you be alluding to the creatures currently on your land in social media posts?
  2. To protect a person or other witnesses? Again why open your mouth? Why allude that they are on your property? You are drawing people in so that defies anything allegedly to protect anyone.

The missing piece: How was it done?

One question that kept prevailing, how did he do it? Well in investigation you don’t always get every single element of a crime. You may not get the stolen money recovered, or the murder weapon, or a motive, heck some murders you don’t even have a body!

But I can state my hypothesis based on some of the intelligence gathered now that we know Yeoman’s Colorado residence.

In my opinion this was a person in a mask or costume, and was shot with a video camera, like Yeoman states and photos were taken of the video on a computer screen. In doing what I do for a living I have seen plenty of taking photos from a phone of video surveillance to get into the of officers for a BOLO (Be on the lookout). So upon inspection of the pictures I concur.

The pictures may have only been released via social media and not directly sent to anyone as to mask any metadata on the pictures.  However in thinking of such, I give far too much credit to Yeoman for this. Given his background this may have been the only reason for him to distribute the photos.

That being said, I believe we are getting photos only because the video would prove this was a hoax by showing details Yeoman did not want people to say. He would simply counter any request of the video with they were destroyed in a fire.

However the photos provided do show an anomaly which I have identified as natural lighting source from a neighbor’s house, likely a patio given the vertical size of the light. The blurring of the light in one of the photos confirms to me this was a video.

89974071_627802041335554_3337122093580943360_n89697692_627801968002228_2039526183271399424_n (1)

Using Yeoman’s actual residence we can see the potential source of the light in the photos.

Diagram 1

A representation using the submitter’s residence of how the video was shot. Line of sight may be off by several feet,

I think that sums that up pretty well.


Potential motive

I have thought long an hard on this one. As an investigator I do not want to think that given this man’s past this was for nefarious reasons, and that’s why for the most part I needed to get over my own shock of the matter.

I have stated in the past the need for a socially isolated person’s need to belong to something. And that something has to usually be done in a grand way. Loneliness can play with the mind, as we are all personally facing in this time of pandemic. But if our social circles are small and in some cases spatially distant, as we have seen with Yeoman and we see a man, likely condemned by his past, probably just trying to belong somewhere and he saw this hoax as an “in.”

Not for money, not for nefarious reasons, just lonely, bored and isolated.


We will be doing a full take on this, this Sunday, 9PM Eastern on Squatch-D TV catch us there to join the conversation.

Till next time,

Squatch-D

Aside from this horrible pandemic racing across the country, there has been this posting of a series of pictures across the internet by a man claiming to be “Scott Yeoman” from Bailey, Colorado of a Sasquatch peeking through his living room window.

89475985_627802104668881_183273452885508096_n89887221_627802184668873_6375709097840345088_n

Two of the series of pictures

The pictures themselves have only to my knowledge been provided via social media, and according to Yeoman are pictures of a computer screen of an alleged video source shot on August 24th, 2017. However despite in mid March this year posting the pictures in Facebook groups the pictures, nor any content appeared on his Facebook page for 2017.

As I have stated in the past a piece of evidence is only as good as the story behind it and Yeoman provided one on the Facebook Group he posted the pictures to:

“Ok so here’s the story with my photos… So, we (my wife and I) bought 11 acres of land in Bailey Colorado we built a foundation of cinder block that is 3’6" above the ground. The land is mostly hard pack dirt and large rock which I shared a video of when we bought it. After we moved a modular home there, we lived off and on there for 2 years while we got it ready for permanent residency.

In August of 2017 we were finishing the interior of the back of the house and I came into the living room and caught a whiff of a VERY harsh odor in the room. It smelled like rotting animal flesh, vomit, and excrement. I caught glimpse of something moving outside the window from the corner of my eye. We have had bears visit pretty regular but the tried to get under the house, not in it. But when I see the figure by the window, I thought a bear had somehow climes up to the window.

I take a lot of wildlife pictures because they literally come up to the outside of it like mule deer, Elk, Bear, haven’t seen any mountain lion, and other small game. I have quite a few feral cars all over my property, but they aren’t mine. But they hang out a lot. Anyway… I saw the top of the head and that caught my attention. It moved closer and I see it eyes were freaking huge and it scared me because bear eyes aren’t that large or far apart. I always have a camera handy to get a good shot of the elk that come extremely close to the house. When I realized it wasn’t a bear?

Fear struck me hardcore. I used a cheap kodak sport digital camera for taking pics and for the most part it takes fast action pictures/ video. It was on the end table next to my recliner approximately 6 ft. from the window. When I pointed it at the window it stopped swaying and closed it eyes as if it was child… "You can’t see me if my eyes are closed".

So, shaking and trying to video at the same time I moved back a step and it slowly moved from one side of the window to the other. It was seriously about a 10 min video, but it was on a 1" x 1 1/2" and card which had to be downloaded on my computer. It didn’t make any attempt to enter the house or run away.

About 8 minutes in my wife came into the room and asked me what I was doing. I told her there’s something outside and it ain’t no bear. When she looked over my shoulder she screamed "what is that thing!" And ran back to the bedroom. I stopped the video, went to the closet and grabbed my 40 caliber off the closet shelf. When I turned back around, it was moving away from the window. I wasn’t going to shoot at it if it tried to get in which it didn’t do. I went to my wife who was freaking out and tried to answer her bombardment of questions and after reassuring her that everything was ok.

She called the sheriff’s department and the sent 3 deputies to check out the property. Their conclusion was most like a bear or other wildlife. Until I showed them the playback. When they reviewed it two of the three were impressed and the third was like it’s a bear.

Anyway, the rest of the night was uneventful and peaceful other than my panicking wife. She ended up having my daughter and her husband come get her and took her to Golden for a couple of days. I downloaded this video on my computer at my mother’s house because she has internet access and I didn’t. Long story short my mother’s house burnt down on a fire we had out here last year.

We have seen it at a distance every now and then in the darkness by the fire light, not the body, but eye shine. And that’s pretty creepy too. But haven’t had any incidents of a destructive nature so I decided to just be cautious when I’m walking my property. I do carry my .40 cal always outside… Just in case. But haven’t had to pull it from my holster. I see signs where he’s broke branches on trees that I can’t reach on a 6′ ladder. And occasionally he’ll move things around. Most signs we see were always after we left and came back home. There’s the story behind the photos…. I hope people can find something in here to benefit them if they are dealing with one too.”

Originally I was going to point out what is behaviorally wrong with the story such as why didn’t he let his wife know what is going on from minute one? But developments in the research lead to more definitive things.

In trying to verify where Mr. Yeoman lives to properly verify via FOIL the proper sheriff’s department for their report as Mr. Yeoman claims some things came to light which not only proved the story to be false, but also a community alert.


Debunking Yeoman

1. “So, we (my wife and I) bought 11 acres of land in Bailey Colorado…”

This is where the search began. And in actuality Mr. Yeoman did not purchase any land in Bailey, CO. more matter to the fact he lives in Golden, CO in this neighborhood. In fact we learned that “Scott Yeoman” is in actuality, Jonathan Scott Yeoman born in 1966.

residence

2. About 8 minutes in my wife came into the room and asked me what I was doing”

Mr. Yeoman’s wife passed away in 2012. She was born in Kokomo, IN on September 10, 1961.  Born, Angela Ann Croddy in Kokomo, IN. Her place of death was Lasalle, CO on December 18, 2012.

Who has ties to Kokomo, IN, Mr. Yeoman’s real name, Jonathan Scott Yeoman.

fb post 2018 III

Mind you this is well after his alleged Bigfoot “Peeper”.

fb post 2018 II

In fact there are memorials to his wife on his Facebook profile.

I am saddened that Yeoman would have to experience a premature death of his spouse, but since he brought his wife into it… we have to mention it. On her memorial Facebook page it appears any photo reference to Yeoman has been removed including a crop of her in a wedding dress.

We also know from his Facebook profile he was seeing a woman in Kokomo, IN as late as 2018 as well.

FMRGF

Yeoman 2018 in Kokomo, IN

3. “I stopped the video, went to the closet and grabbed my 40 caliber off the closet shelf…”

According to Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S) 8-12-108 a felon cannot possess a weapon. This would include any type of gun or crossbow for hunting or any other purpose.

That’s right, Mr. Yeoman is a felon. Arrested in 1992 for CHILD MOLESTATION in Howard County, Indiana. Kokomo, IN is in Howard County.

Indiana DOC

From the Indiana DOC website.

Yeoman was giving one day shy of 6 years and was released early on September 30th, 1994 after serving 2.5 years.

Yeoman had another encounter with the law, for harassment on November 22nd, 2008 in Jefferson County, Colorado. (Golden, CO is in Jefferson County.)


Summation

This is not a debunking based on Yeoman’s character. It is based on his story behind the pictures which turned out to be lies. If you lie on a story of about how something came about, what does that mean?

“A piece of evidence is only good as the story behind it.” – Steve Kulls

Clearly there is a precedent here with disclosing a bit more personal information than on some hoaxes. That is because hoaxes end results are usually harmless or financially motivated. We have a sex offender who preys upon children, so I have to drive home the point. When a person who preys upon children, (And I don’t care how long ago) begins to show clear signs of dishonesty it should make us question why. And in this case I am too scared to speculate, as he is making allusions to Bigfoot being on his property regularly.

The community needs to boot this guy starting yesterday!!!!

So it’s been a few days since my exposing on my blog that Khat Hansen is hoaxing. I wasn’t the first, but it certainly got her attention. Good!

Her response was not to the evidence presented, I mean it was pretty damning, but rather to play the victim card and apparently making claims to folks she was physically threatened, which led some nut case to start accusing me of threatening her.

But the truth is this is exactly what Guy Edwards said several years ago when it comes to the stages of a Bigfoot hoax… particularly points number two and five.

Guy Edwards’ Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax

  • Number 1: The Announcement
  • Number 2: Defensiveness or Attack of Critics
  • Number 3: Postponement of Evidence
  • Number 4: Postponement of Evidence Again
  • Number 5: Claim, you are a Victim of a Hoax

If you look at her Facebook post she states that the people have used photoshopped pictures of gorillas and saying they are hers.

SmartSelect_20190119-021508_Facebook

That post reeks of the Linda Newton-Perry “feel sorry for me” post from years back! Don’t worry “Khitties”, (Khat’s minions) she’s not going anywhere. If their is anything I learned, hoaxers of this magnitude’s egos override the sane thing to do which is bow out quietly and enjoy their fantasies without infecting people who don’t have a clue about the truth and science behind this mystery.

2ri5uv

The pics don’t look like yours??? The one I used, clearly we found the source image. The only Photoshopping done was Khat herself cropping out the mouth and changing the aspect ratio of the picture to make the eyes appear larger.

And make no doubt, she is the one who put it on the video almost two years ago…

It also says she has received threats. This coming from a person already caught in the scam above and a bold face LIE on another Facebook hoax stating the old Shawn Bannon hoax, was actually her picture of a Bigfoot she calls “Big Red.”

Show me the evidence you have been threatened. It’s non-existent like the rest of her crappy experiences with Sasquatch, or her archaeology degree from BYU.

Which is the segway into the next point… she is either not really named Khat Hansen … or her archaeology degree from BYU is bull.  How do I know?

(Above)The only Hansens with archaeology degrees.

(Above) The only graduates in any degree program, with first names starting with K-H-A-T.

Now here’s where things get dicey. There IS a Hansen and only ONE in the United States with the name of Khat Hansen. And she lived in Salt Lake City, Utah from 2001-2006. Her name: Khaty Hansen aka Khatouna Hansen. But yet their is no K-H-A-T with a degree from BYU, which by the way is 45 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah in Provo. An interesting coincidence. By the way…you have to be a Mormon to go to BYU as it is run by the LDS. Khat never mentioned from what I have read as ever, or talking about, being a former Mormon.

By the way…if the only Khat Hansen in the US is our person claiming to be “Khat Hansen”, she doesn’t live in a very Squatchy state; Connecticut. Not the country part either.

See as I veteran Private Investigator, I WILL get to the truth of the matter if pressed. My suggestion: Quit while you’re ahead. More hoaxes will equal more embarrassment. BTW Khat why did you delete so many photos after all the articles came out?  


Crazy People

Now we go to the lunatic fringe as the other day I received a PM from one of her minions, Lynk Paul who deftly accused me of threatening Hansen with violence. do these hoaxers send minions to fight their fights? Cowardly. Whaaaaaat? A conversation ensued and it ended peacefully with this message.

SmartSelect_20190118-202905_Messenger

But alas, the hypocrisy shows it’s true colors and this was forwarded to me. A conversation by a person making threats to shoot some of her detractors. Khat responds by actually saying it was deserved and Lynk Paul, the hypocrite, (who stated to help keep people that threaten violence out of this business), saying it’s been a long time coming.

SmartSelect_20190119-030808_Messenger

Of course when I mentioned this to Mr. Paul he stated it was a set up basically thinking I was monitoring wherever this was posted.  Of course when caught, just say I was set up. For what? There is no motive to do something this stupid. But when you poke the bear this is what you get!!!

                                             

SmartSelect_20190119-020305_Messenger    SmartSelect_20190119-020245_Messenger

Of course what have I been thinking? Er..no!

So in a mood of not feeling so generous… my general sentiment is…

So I compose myself for a minute, take a deep breath and just tell him like it is…

SmartSelect_20190119-020521_Messenger

This is what we are up against folks. Call someone out on BS and the crazies come out of the wood-work. This guy lives on some fantasy world and will never be rationalized. Then he got caught with his pants down, caught in his own hypocrisy, not realizing that someone friendly to the truth was watching.

 A warning to the Khitties out there… keep poking the bear, I will dig even deeper. I fight my fights with facts not threats and grandiose statements.

Rest assure the Sasquatch will not hurt me. They tell me they like me better than you anyway!!!!

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

Hi gang, it’s been some time since I have written. It has been a busy year not so much in the Bigfoot world but my personal life and all for the good. Once again I am a Licensed Private Investigator and am in process of launching an Investigation agency.

My field teams to the East and West have been working their areas and developing new areas and am excited at the possibility that spring 2018 will bring us some great results not seen since that of 5-6 years ago.

New equipment is in and will be using to enhance our coverage of our field team and looking forward to some more field testing of the said equipment.


I have laid low because the vitriol in the Bigfoot “Community” has been at an all time high not seen in a long while. My efforts are geared to the more positive aspects of research now, but as usual some negative creeps in and something I feel necessary to bring to the light of folks.

I write much about hoaxing, because I feel an educated public assists us in our search. Most recently, a relatively new group called the East Texas Bigfoot Hunters, put a post, on what is becoming the bane of the community’s existence, their Facebook page, this post.

Ohiny post

Note the wording on the post and I would like to flag some very key verbiage:

“USING OUR GAME CAMERAS”

“SEVERAL HOURS OF FOOTAGE”

“EXAMINE THE FOOTAGE MORE CLOSELY”

This was followed by a second post eleven minutes later:

second post

Note more of the verbiage:

“FEW MRE PICS FROM THE FOOTAGE”

“WE ARE STILL EXAMINING THE FOOTAGE”

“OWNERS”

Well to many of us that have been around a while this photo has been popping up over the last few years or so, known as The “Greenbrier Video,” so it was no big surprise and was obvious this was a hoax.

So when people started to question the picture that were in the know, particularly researcher Daz Brown and confronted, how quick the story changed and the pointing of the finger to the alleged anonymous submitter of the “picture.” Prompting a change in the story.

Daz

reply 2

Note the wording in the verbiage:

“PHOTOS (EMAILED TO US)”

“PROPERTY OWNER”

Seems to be a little discrepancy from what was said in the first two posts to now this explanation. They went from reviewing hours of footage, to still examining footage to now photo just emailed. Also note that “the property owners,” has become the property owner.

This fits perfectly with most of the stages of Guy Edwards, “Stages of a Bigfoot Hoax:”

  1. The Announcement
  2.  Defensiveness or Attack of Critics
  3. Postponement of Evidence
  4. Postponement of Evidence Again
  5.  Claim, you are a Victim of a Hoax.

We see the Fifth Stage very clear in their last post about the picture:

post2

Some may say, “Well they got fooled and excited and posted it too quick.”

But….NOT SO FAST!

Now look at the statements in the reply and the post regarding this. Here’s my concerns.

First, in their original post, they stated they were looking at “hours of footage.” Footage means video. That changed to pictures this anonymous property owner had “emailed them”

Second, “It took us almost no time to bust this person…”  BUT “After being up most of the night working and examining these photos.” 

Third, They didn’t post at all they busted the property owner, not until  Daz Brown came out and told them the evidence they were presenting as their own was a hoax. Again this was BEFORE ANY POSTING BY ETBH claiming it was a hoax. Which should have taken them no time at all and nothing would have been posted had they just Googled the image. Seems like they are trying to say THEY busted it. Wrong.

Third, they still want to meet with the property owner because the area has great potential….WHAT??

In their post clearly shows a VIDEO PLAYER with the same length of video:

vid player

More to the matter of fact, we see the exact video player here with the same time stamp in The Paranormal Review’s YouTube Page posted in 2014:

YT Cap

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_h7HbIG4YE

So it was very obvious this was a screen cap, which they had said they caught after monitoring their game cams.

Why wouldn’t they know what terrain is in their shot to begin with? Please don’t tell me that you let the property owner set your cams up as an excuse because that doesn’t necessarily wash with me either.

May I be remiss to address the old excuse “We were hoaxed,” to remember the 2005 episode of C2C radio, regarding a bigfoot capture where a gentleman from Menlo Park stated, “We have scientists looking at it right now,” only to be days later using the same excuse.

In another post they talk about using “due diligence.”  Well said due diligence, would normally dictate, that before posting such amazing evidence and claims, that due diligence would be done FIRST.

Seems to me more due diligence was done on T-shirt and decal designs.

And it is ironic, that the news article they were featured in also had two other characters profiled on this blog, the very gentleman from Menlo Park, and Bob Garret.

Common sense tells us what this really is. Well that’s the way I see it anyway, but the reader is the real jury.

Till Next Time
